Angelic’s Kitchen is a premier soul food truck serving up signature specialties such as fried fish dipped in the owner Angelic’s exclusive Southern style breading. Angelic got her start in the food industry when her husband told her to find a hobby to replace shopping. Angelic always enjoyed eating fried fish attending festivals as a child and wanted to turn this into a profit, so she decided to invest in her own equipment and dry storage trailer for working festivals and setting up a catering and food truck business. After years of operating out of a truck, she was the first entrepreneur to sign a lease for the initial phase of the Dairy Market project, a public space that upon completion, will offer food from 18 vendors, meetings and event space, and live entertainment. As an African-American business owner, Angelic’s involvement in the Dairy Market is important.
